Senator McCreary, chairman of the
committee public printing, on Wed.
f needay made a report concerning the
alleged mutilation by the State PriMru
of an official report of the eommusism
for the revision of the statutes, in which
the following words were erased and
did not in the 4M of said re-
portas p ted In the tJimw:
"The commissioners alo respectfully
submit the Divisions 2 and 8 of thU
work were fully prepared and submit-
tedr tothe printer the fint day of
October laseforet, all the other prt of th comm
work has been in his hand since the e
16th of January last. The contract
wih the printer called for the work to
be finished within twenty (20) day af-
ter the submission of each part The
delay in having this work printed s,
therefore, not the fault of the commis-
ion but from causes beyond their con-
trol;" and alao the following words:
-Especially thebIt, 4th az d th dIvisions.
These wre caused by the delay In
submitting the proof of th work by the
printer in time for the present meet-
In of the T l-ture.
The committee on public printing states
that the Stat printer personally inter-
viewed each of the members of the om-
mission whose report was thus mutila-
ted, and believing from what they said
in response to his request that te
words objectionable to him be omitted,
that he had the authority to change the
report by omitting the same, didso; but
his claim of authority therefore was
only "in part borne out by the com-
r jnissloners," who stated that their
consent to the omission only extended
to their personal authority to make the
change, reserving their opinion as to
their right to do so after the report
had been submitted to and ordered
printed by the Senate.
The conclusion of the committee was
that "Your committee in view of all
the facts in the case does not recom-
mend undue condemnation of the State
printer, and express the belief from
statements made by him that there will
not again be a recurrence of such alter-
ations in the official documents of the
In effect, this was a verdict of "Not
guilty; but you mustn't do it again."
Senate concurrent resolution No. 18,
introduced by Hon. W. Hunt Harris,
came up as a special order on Wednes-
day, a end was adopted unanimously.
The resolution is as follows:
Whereas it appears from the report
of the Attorney-General that volume
forty-five, which comprises thedecisions
of the Supreme Court for the January
term, 1903, has been in the hands of the
State printer since April, 1904; that the
"copy for volume forty-six, which
comprises the decisions of the Supreme
Court for the June term, 1903, has been
in the hands of the State printer since
November, 1904; that the copy aforesaid
was delivered to the contractors
promptly upon its receipt by the Attor-
And whereas it appears by said re-
port that copy for volumes forty-seven
and forty-eight, comprising the decis-
ions of the Supreme Court for the year
1904, is in the office of the Attorney-
General and that the contractor has re-
fused to receive the same;
And whereas it is the duty of the
Board of State Institutions to protect
the State of Florida by forcing the
contractor for State printing to carry
Scout the terms of his contract
And whereas the State of Florida has
been damaged by the failure and re-
fusal of the contractor to carry out the
terms of his contract;
Therefore, be it resolved by the Sen-
ate, the House of Representatives con-
\That the Board of State Institutions

,unS forty-five, forty-six, torty-seven

more or less prominence, and if they
were paid salaries they wouldn't get
much business, and if they were paid
commissions they would use their po-

A communication was published a few
days ago in an Atlanta paper showing
that when the Western and Atlantic
railroad of this State was run by the
State it lost money. The State, own-
ing the property, tried to get the best
results from it. Now that the road is
leased, it yields the State a handsome
income. So Florida would make a fail-
ure of it if it went into the life insur-
ance business The business, it is safe
to predict, wouldn't pay, simply because
it wouldn't be run on strictly business
principles and by men acquainted with
life insurance. If the Legislature of
Florida is wise it will keep the State

The "Capital Publishing Company,"
after absorbing the Tallahasseean, im-
agined that it had wiped out all pros-
pe2t of competition, and was even so
sure of it that it caused to be painted in
big black letters, on a yellow back- r
ground in several places on the outside
of its place of business the assertion
that it was "the only newspaper pub-
lished in Leon county."
This statement was true-for about a
week. But alas! it didn't stay true;
for The True Democrat was almost im-
mediately established, and at once cap-
tured the favor of the public, partly
because it was regarded, both at home
and abroad, as the best newspaper Tal-
lahassee had ever had since the demise
of the old Floridian, and partly because
it was absolutely fearless and independ-
ent, beholden to no one, and under no
obligation to tell anything but the plain,
naked truth.
It is now in order for the "Capital
Publishing Company" to paint out its /
untruthful sign, and to recognize the
fact that The True Democrat is here.
and here to stay; here to tell the truth
about; all matters affecting the public
interests, and here to lash all manner

reared upon such theories is well repre-
sented by the horse in the parables
which was built bpon the sand, and
when the wind and waves of adversity,
sicknessor sorrow beat upon it, it crum-
bles. Popular science is as unscientific
in this respect as popular religion. Af-
ter the most elaborate investigations,
endless research and almost superhu-
man perseverance, it invariably arrives
at a point where it can only say, This
is unknowable." Is It not clear that
both theories end in self-confessed fail-
ure, the one in a mysterious belief in
the amalgamation of good and evil, the
other in the mystery of the unknow-

pine. Again Christian Science -
vation is not a death process. It is not
a matter that can be postponed. The
problems of life are not solved in that
way. Jeus said: If a man keep my
saying he shall never see death.
Would he have said that if death were
necessary to salvation ? The world has
been taught to believe that by dying it
could save itself the trouble of living
correctly. Christian Science teaches that
salvation is a way of righteousness.
The awpostion that heaven is attained
througdisease and death is a theory at
once mytlous and wrethed and sore-
pugnant to every normal miMad per-
son that every one naturally desires to
avoid uch an experience even with a
theory of Mlvatiin attwbed toit, and
the efforts of all theories of healing as
well as the prayers of theology are in-
tended to prevent a person from dying,
or, according to these beliefs from go-
ing to heaven. The path heavenward
is truly straight and narrow. None
know this better than Christian Scient-
ists, but this path is not strewn with
ashes, neither does it ultimate in disas-
ter. When we learn that the fulness of
religion may be attained here and now
through truth and love manifested in a
daily life at peace with God and man,
and that such a condition brings heaven
to earth we begin to cheerup. For this
and for other reasons Christian Scient-
ists are a happy class of people. We
see that we may speak of God and His
laws without sadness or any sense of
mystery. If God is our divine Parent,
He is our best friend. A knowledge of
Him is salvation. We may therefore
speak of salvation and heaven, the one
as a joyful experience and the other as
a natural condition that may become a
present and welcome reality. Heaven
cannot be less than satisfaction and per-
fect harmony and it cannot be more.
The psalmist says: "I shall be satisfied
when I awake with thy likeness."
Christian Science is founded on the
Bible. The text book of Christian Sci-
ence is what It purports to be, and in-
cludes, as its title Indicates, a key to the
Scri ptures.
"ScriCese and Health" is a commen-
tary upon the Bible. Other denomina-
tions have commentaries, but no other
book In the world has ever revealed the
power of truth to heal the elek, and en-
abled people to learn the science of the
Scriptures by which this healing is
achieved. The numerous cases of heal-
ing accomplished by the perusal of this
book are so authentic as to be beyond
question. Thousands of people have
testified to such healing, and some of
them have done so under oath, in courts
of law, and their testimony has not
been in the least shaken by cross-exam-
ination. Some of these cases involved
the most terrible diseases known to
mankind. No material system has ever
succeeded in healing a cancer, but
Christian Science has healed hundreds
of them, as well as other so-called in-
curable diseases, such as locomotor
ataxia, tuberculosis, epilepsy and others
considered leo dangerous but equally
incurable, such as asthma, hay fever,
St. Vitas' dance. Christian Scientists,
as well as other people, know such in-
stances and the beneisris. of Chris-
tian Selenez have many of them testi-
fled to thee wonderful cures, and are
generally willing and glad todo so again.
It is not pretended that there are no
failures as yet in Christian Science prac-
tice. It would Indeed be surprising if,
with all the error that confronts it, our
new-born understanding should reach
the height of infallibility at ones. Chris-
tian Science, however, is an exact sci-
ence, and we expect that its unfailing
power will be more and more proven as
we grow in grace. For this grace we
are praying daily and hourly. Should
not all good men and women join in
that prayer, considering that its object
is the amelioration of all human suffer-
ing ? In the meantime, it is, to say the
least, unbecoming for advocates of ma-
terial systems to demand no failures of
us, while they view with complacency
the immeasurably greater proportion of
their own. The healing power in Chris-
tian Science is not att~aned through any
new Bible, nor through any strange in-
terpretation of the old one, but through
the truth contained in that old Bible,
our Bible, your Bible and my Bible,
and Christian Scientists have none other.
Mortals are in a state of superstition
about God and man, about heaven and
earth, about sickness and health and
life and death, and, indeed, about every
other conceivable condition or thing. -
Furthermore all prevailing theories,
whether religious or scientific, have
looked for cause in matter, for God in
His opposite. Is not this the veryacme
of superstition ? The self-evident im-
possi ability of finding truth in error
seems to have escaped human reason
until Christian Science came to reveal
it. The superstructure that has been

General Wood's Forces Have Fiercc
Fn0Unters on Jo.o Island


While Americans Lose Only Seven In
Killed and Fifteen Wounded--Cam-
paign Still Under Way.

Advices from Manila, under Mon-
day's date, state that fierce fighting
has been going on the last two weeks
on the island of Jolo, between the
outlaw Moro chief, Pala, with 600
well armed followers, and troops un-
der the personal command of Major
General Leonard Wood. Pala's losses
thus far are 300 killed( while those
of General Wood are seven killed ana
fifteen wounded. Pala and his re-
maining followers, in accordance with
Moro tradition, prefer death to cap-
General Wood, with detachments
from the fourteenth cavalry, the
seventeenth, the twenty-second and
the twenty-third Infantry and con-
atabulary scouts, have driven Pala and
- his followers Into a swamp which has
been surrounded.
Pala was a noted slave trader and
warrior when the Americans occupied
the islands. Later he escaped with
his followers to the island of Pula
Sekar, near Borneo.
One of Pala's leaders deserted and
took refuge in the British settlement
at La Had. Pala, discovering his
whereabouts, landed with a follow-
ing and demanded of the British mag-
istrate that he turn the deserter over
to him. The demand was not com-
plied with, and Pala ordered a mas-
sacre. Twenty-five persons, including
several Britons, were killed. Pala es-
caped to the island of Jolo and or-
ganized the present uprising.
It is reported that the Borneo au-
thorities requested General Wood to
apprehend Pala, dead or alive, and
turn him over to them.

Show Girl Released From New
Ycrk Prison Without Ball.


District Attorney Jerome, Despairing
of a Successful Trial, Asws icr
Her Discharge.

After more than eleven months in
prison and three mistrials on the
charge of murdering "Caesar" Young,
Nan Patterson walked from the Tombs
prison at New York Friday a fre,,
woman. As she left the great build-

ing which has been her home since
a few days after Young was founc
dying in a cab in lower New York,
2,000 people greeted her with cheers,
for the news that D:strict Attorney
Jerome would move for her dismissal
from custody had spread throughout,
the vicinity of the court house.
The move to discharge Nan Pat-
terson came rather unexpectedly to
the public. It was an hour or two
before noon when District Attorney
Jerome appeared before Recorder
Goff in special sessions and announced
that he desired to move the discharge
of the former chorus girl without
ball and on her own recognizance.
Not the least interesting of the
day's events and perhaps the great-
eat dramatic climax to the troubles
of the former Florodora girl was the
reunion in freedom with her sister,
Mrs. J. Morgan Smith, and her bro-
ther-in-law, J. Morgan Smith, both
of whom were discharged by Justice
Cowing In the court of general seas-
sions, after being held on charges of
conspiracy in connection with the Pat-
terson case. Smith was also held for
contempt of court in falling to obey
a subpoena as a witness at the first
trial. He was fined $250 and released
on this charge. Then came the sur-
prise, for Nan Patterson herself paid
the fine out of a check which had
been given her by a friendly news-
District Attorney Jerome announced
W's decision to free Nan Patterson In
a speech in the course of which he
declared that during the last trial
he had information that members of
the jury had agreed that J. Morgan
Smith had bought the revolver and
that Nan Patterson carried It In the
cab and that Young did not commit
He took occasion to refute pub-
llshed reports as to the cost of the
trial, stating that the whole expense
was not more than $x,000. Following
this line he declared that the news-
papers had made "gross misrepresen-
tations," and then said:
"This ca.ie has caused one more
step in this country toward trial by
newspaper rather than trial by jury.
I do not refer to those papers which
have merely reported the proceedings,
but to thoso that in their editorial
rooms have labored to arouse sympa-
thy for the prisoner with the result
of a serious miscarriage of justice.,

Nan Patterson be discharged on her
own recognizanc.'
When uht- came into court Nan was
smi!lng gayly. but as ltfecorder Goff
began to a'nress her the tears cam,
Into her eyes and before he concluded
she was weeping. The recorder spoke
with a kindly note in his voice that
seemed to affect her very much. He
closed by Paylng:
"Let rnme treatt you in all your fu-
ture life to remember the terrible ex-
perlencep through which you have just
passed and to permit every action of
your llif hereafter to be guided by
that expertlnce. I feel sure that you
will do so: that you will remember
your ordal."

Chires Aigaitt AustroH aga-
r Officials.
President Roosevelt Ia manifesting
a particular interest in the case of
Marcus Braun, a special inspector of
thae United States Immigration service,
who is having trouble with officials
of the Austro-Hungarian government,
whom he charges with tampering with
his official mall. Inspector Braun com.
plalaed of his treatment to Ambassa-
dor Storer, who cabled to the state
department some details of the case.
Inspector Braun has made several
itpor's to the bureau of immigration
ad a result of his inquiries in Europe,
especially in Austria-Hungary. One of
these reports was received by the de-
partment last autumn and another
a few days ago.
The first is sensational in its state-
ments. It contains allegations, back-
ed by affidavits, of the Austro-Hunga.
rlan government's efforts to foist upon
this country immigrants who may ilo:
be desirable from the viewpoint of
American people. Tihe charge is
made specifically that the Austro-Hun-
Sarian government is paying tie
steamship companies large sums of
money each year to bring immigrants
to this country and also that the im-
migrants are being urged to become,
American citizens.
The reports of Inspector Braush
have not been published, lest the
statements they contain might cause
friction between the United States and
the Austro-Hungarian government.
The officials of the latter government
have been cognisant in a general way
of the contents of Inspector Braun's
reports for some time, and it is Inti-
mated that is one reason for the trou-
ble in which he now finds himself lb.
The president, Saturday, called for
the reports of Inspector Braun and
will go over them himself in connec-
tion with the consideration of the in-
spector's present difficulty. Tamper-
ing with the mail of an official in a
foreign country is a serious matter,
and there is no disposition on the
part of the officials of the department
of commerce and labor to treat the
complaint of Inspector Braun lightly.




So Declares Trial Judge Regardir|
Nan Patterson Case.


Justice Davis of New fork Supreme
Court Astonishes Law rs in a
Speech at Clob Dinner.

Somewhat to the astonishment of
those present at the monthly dinner
in New York city Monday night of
the Phi Delta Pal Club. an organi-
sation ot lawyers, Justice Vernon M.
Davis of the supreme court of the
state of New York. who was the
guest of honor, gave his opinion as
to the guilt of Nan Patterson, while
making an argument in defense of
Assistant District Attorney Rand, who
had prosecuted the young woman at
her three trials for the murder ot
Caesar Young.
Justice Davis, who presided at the
first two trials of the former chorus
girl, said that she had lied from be-
ginning to end, and It was his opin-
ion that the majority of the com-
munity now believed that Mias Pat.
person held the pistol by which Young
was shot, that J. Morgan Smith
bought the weapon and geve It to her,
charging ler at the time with the duty
of "scaring" Young.
In the middle of the Justice's re-
marks the reporters were asked to
leave the room, but before they had
reached the door they were called
back by the speaker, who said that
he left it to their discretion as to
Just what parts of his speech wer
to be used.
"We have heard a great deal In the
public press of late of severe critl,
cism of MT. Rand and his conduct
of the trial," said the Justice. "Yoe
can't prosecute a criminal without
telling what you believe to be the
"In the second trial before me, the
defendant went on the stand, and It
ws quite obvious that she was twl
Ing falsehoods from begnining to end.
The very air seemed charged' with the
fact that she was lying. Yet she was
a woman; she was young; it was natb
ural that the public should sympathies
with her. People seemed to know
that she was not telling the truth, a&4
the great public of New York said.
'Why shouldn't she lie? Let her l1e.
Let her iet the benefit of her lies.
"But today In the light of the last
disagreement, I feel sure that most
people are convinced-that a majo-
ity of the people believe-that the
pistol that killed Caesar Young was
held by Nan Patterson; was. dis*
charged by her; was bought by 3.
Morgan Smith, In an attempt to get
money from Caesar Young for the
support of the combined family.
"I don't mean to say that she took
the pistol from the reticule and shot
him In the side, but I do believe that
sho had the pistol and showed It to
Yotng. An argument followed, and
ih' took hold of the weapon. In the
vonvr-sation and subsequent strug.
gles, the pistol went off, and the
man was killed. I believe, moreover,
that had she told the story on the
witness stand as it really happened-
in other words, had she told the truth
-that the second Jury would have
acquitted her."

Matching Shades to Dodge Them.
Before trying to match the sample
of silk the clerk asked:
"Is this a piece of something you
want, or something you don't want?"
"Something I want, of course, re-
plied the customer, with asperity.
'You don't suppose, do you, that I
would go to all this trouble for a
thing I can't use?"
"Some folk do," said the clerk.
"I've met a number of them. The
first woman I ever saw with that kind
of bee In her bonnet hal a square
Inch of blue silk that sho wanted me
to match. The scrap of Allk was so
small that It woa hard to make cor-
parisons, but after hauling down half
the blue bolts on the shelves and rmin-
ning to the door several times to test
the color In broad daylight, I found
the exact shade.
"'How many yards do you want,
madame?' I asked.
"'Oh,' said the woman, 'I don't
want any. Almost any other piece
will do. That particular shade is very
unbecoming. I just wanted to make
sure that I don't get It, that's all.'"
The customer laughed. "What did
you say?" she asked.
"I'd rather not tell," said the clerk.
"Anyhow, since then I have hee'n cau-
tiouo. Before matching a sample now
I inquire as politely as pMssible Into
a cutorner's Intentions. If it's a caso
of 'Don't want' I don't hurt nuse'lf

York and Colon, and owned by the
Panama Railroad company, were ab-

when it came to building such ships,
I! was found, according to Secretary
Taft's statement. that while he could

is certain to produce, every time that

If V increases the cost of construction

Soap Tress Grow In This Stats.
Ocala has a soap tree, which may
be destined to make the city famous
and to increase very largely the rev-
enues of the state. This tree Is grown
In Algiers, Africa, and from It is man-
ufactured a soap of commerce.
Professor E. Moulle of Jacksonville
once lived In Algiers, and of course
has a full knowledge of the tree, and
believed if It was transpranted to Flor-
ida would thrive well and would add
to the state's resources and revenues.
Professor Moulie belilevcs that th.,
is the Identical soap tree of Algiers.
and that It will lead to very impor:
ant results and will mean much for
Florida, as it Is a tree of great com-
mercial value. ":!
This tree was brought to Ocala
about twenty years ago from China
by Rev. lenjamn Helm, who for a
lung time was a Presbyterlan inlss.on.
ary to the Celestial e.mpire. It occu-
pie a constpicuouis place in Colonel
Livingston's front yard, and Is quite

Colony Town for Plerqlda.
The Southern Colonisatio company,
composed of northern capitalists, are
preparing to open up the new colony
town of Mansteld, six miles north
6f Palatka. The company ha secured
20,000 acres of fine trucking land on
the line of the Georgia southern and
Plorida railroad, and expect to bring
several hundred northern nmimtgrant
to settle on the lands. Residence lots
are sold to members for $14, and if
the member builds a beme* an
lands within six month' tme the puW
chase money of the lea will be re-
funded to him. A premium of one
residence lot will be given to the
first child born within the colony.
The colony management Is prepar-
Ing to plant 500 acres of Japanese
sugar cane and will import seed for
this purpose. The cane is said to re-
produce itself from year to year, and
has to be replanted only every five
or six years.

The people of Gainesville are jubi-
lant over the passage and approval
by Governor Broward of the Gaines-
ville charter bill, which materially
Increases the population of the city.
The lines of the incorporation extend
one mile In each direction from tho
courthouse, which means that a scope
of a quarter of a mile in each direc-
tion Is included In the new charter.
This extension takes In East Gaines-
vrle, several settlements of East
OGanesville, which have heretofore
been outside the limits and about half
of North Gainesville. With the en-
larged powers brought about by the
passage of this bill, the city may now

During the past two years a persist-

by the Florida Crescent, one of the

Improved roads in season and out of

to be careless on the subject, out grad-

Making railroad rates is like playing
a game of checkers or cbess. Com-
munities to be benefited, producers.
manufacturers or shippers to be aided
represent the pieces used. Every poeti-
ble move is studied for its effect on the
general r(msilt by skilled traffle mana-
gers. A false move in the making of
freight rates may mean the ruin of a
city, of a great manufacturing Interest,
of an agricultural community. Rail-
roads strive to build up all these so
that each may have an equal chance in
the sharp competition of business. 80
sensitive to this rivalry are the rail-
roads that In order !o build up business
along their lines they frequently alow
the shipper to practically dictate rates.
Rate making has been a matter of de-
volopment; of mutual concessions for
mutual benefit. That !s why the rail-
roada of the Untted States have volun-
tarily made freight rates so nju'h lower
in this country thnn they are on the
government-owned and operated rail-
ways of Rnrope and Anatralls that
they are now the lowest transportation
rates In the world.
